Staying in Seaside for Labor Day weekend seems crazy if you don't care for large crowds, which we don't. Yet somehow our week long plans had us there for Sunday and Monday night of what is probably their busiest weekend of the year, expect perhaps Spring Break. The weather was gorgeous, 77* one day, very warm for the Oregon coast, which brought even more people out to enjoy the beach, the shops and our hotels restaurant.
No worries though, at all. First of all, we were able to park at our hotel with no problem, plenty of spaces for all. When I went to the desk to tell them we had parked there while waiting for our hotel, the GREAT and FRIENDLY clerk, Rick, said that was just fine and that he could call us when our room was ready. Within 20 minutes, he had called, and he checked us in within 5 minutes, telling us we had his favorite room. He also gave us a few coupons for money off breakfast and dinner. Breakfast is NOT included with the room, but if you eat at their restaurant, there are a lot of choices or you can walk to Pig N Pancake or another. Hotel has a nice pool and hot tub also, we did not use them though. I could see why the room was his favorite, if you are on the top floor, we had the far most Northern floor so we had not only the huge balcony with a full view of the ocean, but also a side window, like a porthole, looking up the beach. Full kitchen, huge room, large seating area, everything was great! Looking out at the beach, we were shocked to see hundreds of people out there, it was packed. I wondered about the noise as they were booked up in the hotel, figured we would just have to prepare for some party noise and get over it. Nope! The whole three days, two nights, we never heard a noise from any other rooms. It of course probably helped we were on the top floor and end of the hall but it was great. I will say, people complain about NO A/C. That is correct, there is none but almost all Oregon beach hotels do NOT have A/C. why? Because it rarely gets warm enough to use it. You can just open your sliders and let the fresh ocean air in. This was a very warm weekend and I can say, being on the top floor, it was pretty warm. But they have fans they will bring you if you ask, we actually loved it and would never complain about that. But be forewarned, if you are staying on an upper floor and you love air conditioning!!!!!
We ate dinner at the restaurant both nights, my husband got the steamer clams both times, they were served in a huge bowl, lots of them, he was thrilled. Restaurant has a great view of the beach also, it basically sits on the beach. They had great music, I believe they have it each night except Sundays but they had a singer for the holiday weekend. Nice lounge, great happy hour with plenty of specials. Hey, and if you go to their website, click on the restaurant/lounge menu section (great secret) I found a coupon for a free appetizer. We used it both nights for the clams, $14 free seafood, cant beat a deal like that! (may have been for the summer only, I don't know.)
If you like all the shops, you can't get closer to this, walk out the front door and you are in the midst of it all. This is the top spot to stay to be on the beach and the shops at the same time. We were really pleased and will be back!!!
